The sensors will be included on the 2SS, 2LT and 1LT w/ SRJ package. All others I assume will be an option.

Oh God. Thinking about the upcoming 'My backup sensor bumper is sooooo ugly" threads is giving me heartburn already.

Well, I guess this means I can let my wife drive the car when I get it.

Funny story, she actually backed into our mailbox one day in her 01 camaro, (way to look behind you) then instead of asking me to fix it, she moved the car so that she could "re-adjust" the mailbox with the front bumper. I hope this backup sensor will detect mailboxes.

It's called safety, people! The first time that you are warned by the sensors that your 4 year old is behind your car, you won't care that you have a couple of dots on your bumper. It IS difficult to see directly behind you in this car. If one accident is prevented because of this then I applaud GM. Don't seatbelts make an interior look ugly?

It's called parenting! If you have no idea where your 4 year old is... dont back up until you do! Somehow no one ever ran over me or any of my siblings (I'm one of 6) and we have never owned a car with backup sensors.

I have no issues with the convenience of having backup sensors if you want them. I DO, however, have an issue with them being provided for people as a crutch to help them not know how to drive. If you cannot park your car without a bunch of idiot-proof gizmos, you shouldnt be allowed to own it.

Back-up Sensors

You know I'm all for Safety!
But, Why couldn't they have put the system in from the git-go?
Okay, It's $295 as an option on a new car. Why not Standard option?
It would cost more than $295 for the retro-fit.
It's not like it's new technology. It's been out for years.
Besides, that's what's passenagers are for. Use them to watch your backend. I do.

Thank god for small miracles. I might actually be able to let my wife drive the car now.

In nearly 4 years of daily driving, I've not put more than minor scratches on my truck. In one of the half dozen times my wife has driven it, she managed to back into another truck's ball hitch and put a nice big dent/scratch in the f'ing bottom middle of the tail gate.

I bought her a new 2009 Malibu on 29 June 2009. First payment was due 13 Aug. 2009. She calles me 28 July and tells me she managed to back into a Lowes truck that parked behind her in the apt. complex. Hadn't even made the first payment yet. Why she couldn't just tell them to move their f'ing truck that should be blocking people in to begin with I'll never know...

My guess is that they will release this as an accessory kit for already built cars like they did with the Pontiac G8:

You are absolutely right. There is no such thing as an accident.

There's nothing wrong with the V6 at all and I never knocked it I simply pointed out that have a car weight less means nothing to the general public.
Relax, I did not state that you said anyhting. It was all the V8 versus V6 threads. Not you personally!!!!

I think that back up sensors should be an option. I love them on my diesel
F-250. They are especially helpful when backing up to trailers and the only use i get from them is to judge distance from my trailer hitch to my trailers

It's not that I have a huge cosmetic issue w/ the idea, ( I guess I'll reserve judgement until I can see some pics) I have a problem with paying the extra $300.00 on something I have already ordered and paid a deposit on.

It should be MY OPTION whether or not I want to pay an extra $300.00 for an ADDED safety feature.

I want to say that I applaud GM for listening to our requests but I personally feel that I am responsible enough to drive safely w/o CURB FEELERS and BACK UP SENSORS .

Hey GM, PLease Give Me the option of having a "Back Up Sensor delete" 2SS Camaro

Thanks.

So if it's such a big safety concern, why is it not available on the 1SS? Why does the 1SS keep getting left out of these options? Not everyone wants leather seats!

Yes, I too would like to see if this changes the looks of the bumper?

My Car is set for Production on Sept 7th... and is a 2SS so i guess it will be added to my car regardless of my opinion, I just called the dealer and he said... We won't know until they get a vin number to run the list of installed options...

Anyone have a picture of what they look like???

Wow, backup sensors will go great with grandma's curb feelers. Maybe she'll take me to soccer practice in it.

Okay, It's $295 as an option on a new car. Why not Standard option?


My understanding as the notice read, it wil not be a stand-alone option. it will be included with 2SS & 2LT, 1LT with C&C. Cars with this package will have a price increase of $295.00
